Another day, another set of celebrities sparring over t-shirt lines and Internet slang. Just a few weeks ago we were talking about Porsha Williams and Teyana Taylor beefing over the term “unbothered.” Now, the conversation has shifted to Young Money affiliates Nicki Minaj and Christina Milian.
Milian is part owner of We Are Pop Culture, an online boutique that sells items with popular social media phrases on them—including a hooded sweatshirt that reads: “Pretty on fleek.” Nicki Minaj just so happened to use the same phrase in a verse on her Beyoncé-featured song, “Feeling Myself.”
Yesterday on Instagram, the always outspoken rapper pointed out that Christina swiped the phrase from her and “joked” about waiting for her cut.
“Fleek by Onika — I saw Christina sellin tshirts that say Pretty On Fleek. I was waiting on my percentage at the door. *tilts head*,” she wrote.
Milian quickly responded in an apparent attempt to defend herself while still trying to play nice with Nicki.
“Hey boo. Been saying #OnFleek everything for a while now.. But I’m not afraid to share,” the E! reality star wrote. “Most biz these days on shirts and etc is based off new Pop Culture quotes. That’s why it’s called line is called We Are Pop Culture. More of an homage. I see it pretty often. But if you feel any kind of way I’m not a greedy Biatch. the girl that said #OnFleek in first place must be on cloud 9 now.”
The conversation then carried over to Twitter with Christina still trying to keep things friendly with Nicki.
And all we want to know is where is Peaches Monroe and what does she think of all of this?
